Two potential locations are in the running for Papillion’s next splash pad.
City Councilman Tom Mumgaard offered an update on the proposed location at last week’s City Council meeting.
Mumgaard said an item will likely be on the agenda for the council’s Nov. 5 meeting that will formally propose at least one possible location for the splash pad.
Glenwood Hills Park remains on the table, despite multiple residents of the neighborhood who spoke in opposition to the splash pad at the council’s Oct. 1 meeting.
The park was previously considered for a splash pad site but concerns were raised about increased neighborhood traffic and lack of parking.
However, the city believes those concerns have since been addressed by adding additional parking outside of the neighborhood.
In addition to Glenwood Hills, Mumgaard said he is also considering Eagle Ridge Park.
The City of Papillion would need to create an interlocal agreement with Eagle Ridge because the neighborhood is a sanitary improvement district, said Darren Carlson, the city’s community relations coordinator.
The city would also need to make decisions regarding additional parking, maintenance, funding and restrooms if it built at Eagle Ridge Park.
Papillion has one public splash pad at Schwer Park, 800 W. Centennial Road, which was built in 2008.
Shadow Lake Towne Center build a smaller SprayGrounds water feature last year.
